Just wanted to give any interested forum members an update on what I have done lately with my robot,
Gimbal joystick control with high resolution in steering and throttle.
4.8vdc to 12vdc step up convertion for B&W WA HD Camera and 400mw FPV transmitter. gives a good 90 minutes run time.
XBee-PRO 900HP long range radio's.
High speed, high torque servo motors. these servo's from Pololu Robotics are shown being tested.
And also I am working on the recieving end by incorporating OSD over FPV, i.e. video overlay of sensor data.
After adjusting my steering linkage to full Ackermann steering geometry, I decided not to re-code and test because because of the limited turning radius.
Some things I need to accomplish are: dedicated control boards, water resistant housing and try to make the servo motors water resistant. After all my original idea was to monitor the enviroment in my general area.
I will keep this thread updated of my progress,
Just in case anybody thought my P.O.C. was'nt sufficiently substantiated.
